Many people are not aware of all the options that they have available to them. If you want to know more about finding the best dairy free alternative to butter in your recipes, then read on. In this article you will learn about:

Coconut Oil 

 this is an all-natural oil that has many uses. Can be used as a substitute for butter or as a way to simply infuse the recipes with an exotic flavor. Also, it is very easy to find. It is a great addition to coconut milk and salads.

Olive Oil 

A glass of wine

 this is another common cooking ingredient that can be found in many different types of foods. It has many different uses, such as being added to salads, spread on a salad, or even eaten on its own. It is an excellent moisturizer and can easily penetrate the skin. Plus, it is good for frying. Try using it instead of regular butter.

Sesame Oil 

 this is an Asian type of vegetable oil that can be found on Asian food. It has a heavy taste and is commonly mixed with soy sauce. It is known for its healthy benefits to the body, but can also be used to add a slightly spicy flavor to meats or as a marinade. You can also use sesame oil on crackers or vegetables.

Agave Nectar 

this is an interesting type of sweetener. This is produced by dehydrating the agave nectar, which is the sweetest of all the sweeteners. The product that can be made is limited, however. For example, if there were twenty million chefs who loved to make butter cookies, they would not be able to make it for twenty million people. If you are one of the twenty million, you can use agave nectar as an alternative to butter.

Vanilla Extract 

 this is another wonderful dairy free alternative to butter. This has a slight vanilla flavor without the heavy taste of commercial butter. It is made from pure vanilla extract, which makes it highly concentrated. You can add it to many recipes without worrying about having too much.

Sherry Gelatin 

 this is a product that is made from purified milk, gelatin, and oil. This is a thick cream that will thicken soups and sauces. If you want to make hot curds that are great for soups, you can combine it with olive oil and warm the curds until they are at the desired thickness. This is also very rich in calcium.

Now that you know all these great benefits of coconut oil, why would you want to use butter? Coconut oil is a healthy choice. You will be healthier, and it tastes great. You do not have to spend thousands of dollars on special butter that has been processed and refined. All you need is a little coconut oil and you can turn many dishes into delicious meals. Try using coconut oil instead of butter.
